Dolphins place CB Byron Jones on reserve/PUP, will miss four weeks

·1 min read

While the Miami Dolphins are clearing roster spots to meet the Tuesday deadline, they’re giving one of their defensive starters a chance to get healthier.

The team announced on Tuesday that they’ve placed cornerback Byron Jones on the reserve/PUP list, as a result, he will miss the first four weeks of the 2022 season.

Jones had been on the active/PUP list this summer following his leg surgery this offseason.

Miami will now go into the season with Xavien Howard and Nik Needham as the team’s two starting outside cornerbacks and will need to rely on some of the unproven depth pieces to make up for Jones’ absence.

Be sure to keep up with all of Miami’s roster moves via the cutdown tracker.
